The new Firefox design arrived. My first impression: The tab bar looks a bit weird, especially with just one tab open. But all in all it looks more modern and reminds me of the Firefox Android version. I think I like it. 🤔

I just closed my LinkedIn profile. It just didn’t make sense anymore to have me constantly spammed with annoying emails and messages. I have already signed a contract that will start as soon as I finish my studies. And should I be looking for a new job at some point, there are still plenty of other options besides doing it on this platform. So bye-bye, LinkedIn! 👋

Libre internet speedtest

Published on in 🔗 Links

Until now, when I wanted to measure my internet speed, I mostly used speedtest.net or speed.cloudflare.com. But recently I found a better alternative: librespeed.org. Advantages: Open Source, tracking and ad-free, possibility to host it yourself. After a few tests I can say that it works at least as well as the other alternatives.
